The cheerful presenter and her husband John Rabar broke the news through their respective social media accounts.

“We thank God for blessing us with a healthy baby boy. #LittleAngel" John Tweeted while Amina wrote "Shout out to the most supportive dad and caring husband any woman could ask for @JohnHBR #mapenzitelebooboo"

But As Amina admits it hasn’t been easy balancing life as an MC, K24 TV presenter and a radio job.

She shared a video teaching her son how to swim at the VillaRosa Kempinski admitting that she would rather spend time with her son but bills need to be paid.

She went on to admit that she feels guilty whenever she leaves for work leaving her baby behind.

“How I'd rather spend every waking moment.....with the love of my life. But bills aren't gonna pay themselves now are they? I feel sooooo guilty every time I leave for work. Am I the only one? It's the WORST feeling. The working mums get me. It doesn't get easy with time...but you gotta do what you gotta do #WorkingMums #KingTumi” she captioned the video.

Something which other mothers agreed to including KTN’s Najma Ismael.

syombua89: I feel you.....I feel the same way n mind you am a single mum so I have no choice but to provide a good life for my lil champ. ..

najma_ismaeel: You are not alone dear, I remedy by making the best out of the time I get to spend with them, I go all out and make sure I exhaust them with me

sindetie@amina_kenya true bills gotta be paid but you have done well and your son will definitely relate so keep up the good work and being the mother you are

ciikuwasoxxy@amina_kenya: Mondays are usually the hardest coz you spend all weekend with them. I think I resign in my mind every Monday morning.
